Thank God for the sun
I’m sure this isn’t news to most of you, but we’ve had really lousy weather in MA for quite a while now. Lousy enough to mean that S’s shop basement flooded…over and over and over. The rivers around us are so high that the water actually seeped up through the bottom of the concrete! So needless to say, it has felt AMAZING to have a few days of 60+ weather and SUNSHINE!!! It was actually so warm on Thursday and Friday that I was SWEATING! Before I went in to each professor’s office, I had to wipe my upper lip and fix my hair, lol. But no way was I complaining. 😉
So this weekend (even though I probably could have worked for all 48 hours of it), I took yesterday completely OFF. I caught up on my DVR and read a book, and then sat outside in the sun for HOURS and started another. 😉 S was so cute, he told me not to do ANY work – not house work, not work work, not anything. So I took him up on it…and it was WONDERFUL.
As wonderful as yesterday was, I woke up today feeling super stressed, so I’ve been working most of the day. S is being so supportive…vacuumed the whole house, got food for dinner, and then left me alone to do what I needed to do. I know he’s getting tired of never seeing me, and when he does see me, of me not having any energy left for him, but he knows how important it is for me to make this work, and he’s doing what he can to help.
I’m hoping that things continue to get better, and easier…and that the next four weeks pass by QUICKLY. Keep your fingers crossed for me. 🙂
